It's a red band trailer, plus it's written by Seth McFarlane, so nsfw.

It seems like one of those fake movie trailers you'd see on YouTube, just because of the ridiculous premise.

Now if only MacFarlane could be funny, this movie could be good.

I saw The hunger games with my friend opening weekend. I liked it quite a bit, because it reminded me of battle royale and it was finally a reason for me to go out to the movies
(movies kinda suck nowadays imo).

I'm speechless.

As much as I'm tempted to get excited, Dumb and Dumberer was so bad I don't really have hopes for this one.

Also, I'm starting to think that all these sequels to '80s and '90s movies are a symptom of an aging population. I'm pretty sure '70s movies weren't getting sequels in the '90s.

If you haven't seen the original TOTAL RECALL, do yourself a favor and put in on your queue. Some of the effects come off as goofy due to the movies age, but the goofy effects don't take away anything from the movie rather they add some laughs. Great story, great action, and it may be Arnold's best acting performance outside of politics and infidelity. It's a movie you can't forget.

"Two weeks. Two weeks".


What do you mean, by "justify yet another remake?" Isn't this the first remake of Total Recall? I think it looks really good and seems to be different tonally then the original. I hope they play up the ambiguity that Philip K. Dick had in his short work that you're not really sure what is real and what is memory.

What is the Two Weeks thing?

This could go either way, I hope it's good.

Not a remake of TOTAL RECALL, but in a sense that every movie seems to be rehashed. Not that I don't get excited about some reboots, but major releases deal with characters we are already supposed to know...and either already like or hate.

This remake might be one of the ones that brings something new to the table, and if it does, it "justifies another remake".

Two weeks.
